Hello from North-West PA

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, name here is Allen, I am always looking for more information on smoking & BBQing. I started out with an electric upright torpedo looking smoker that my dad had and then used a charcol version of pretty much the same thing. I then moved on to a small offset style smoker and used a combination of charcol and wood. I liked that style smoker but the backyard BBQ's were getting too large for that so my son purchased another small ofset smoker and with both of them running that got us through another summer. The BBQ was ok but not great, I distroyed a lot of ribs in those days. The wife sent me to Myron Mixon's Cook school in 2011 for a fathers day present. My son and I learned a lot over that weekend. We now do more cookouts then ever with great reviews. We moved up to a large stick burning smoker (4 racks 46" square) in 2012 that we put on a 16 ft trailer. We did one KCBS cookoff this year and once again learned alot and met a lot of very nice folks.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 


We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per TulsaJeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
